Certified Salmon Safe
Certified Salmon-Safe Wine
Keeping urban & agricultural watersheds clean for salmon
Founded in 1995 by an Oregon-based river and native fish protection organization, Salmon-Safe has become one of the nation’s leading regional eco-labels. Erosion and runoff from hillside vineyards can bring silt into streams, reducing the ability of native salmon to survive. That’s why Salmon-Safe has partnered with LIVE, VINEA, and Oregon Tilth to work with pioneering wine grape growers to protect Oregon’s important salmon watersheds. Since first certifying vineyards in the Willamette Valley more than a decade ago, Salmon-Safe has certified 110 Oregon vineyards representing a third of Oregon’s wine grape acreage. Look for the Salmon-Safe label on wine and you’ll know that your purchase helps keep rivers clean so that salmon can spawn and thrive.
Argyle is very committed to preserving the environment in any way it can. We make extra efforts to ensure that agricultural processes have little to no impact on the health and habitat of our beloved salmon population. Additionally, our winery and vineyards are Oregon Certified Sustainable, we use bio-diesel in our tractors, our wine shipping packaging is made from recycled material, etc.
Salmon-Safe.org, a prize fighter for the cause, honored Argyle with a certificate and acknowledgement that Argyle meets or exceeds salmon-safe standards.
